Marvel is just trying to make Hercules look like badass-sexy daddy-eye candy-scruffy-super hottie- LITERAL Greek God that gives all gay geeks huge boners. Check out the newest variant cover of Hercules #1, drawn by Russell Dauterman and Matt Wilson..
Holy fuck, are they seriously saying that this character is completely straight? According to Marvel Editor-in-Chief -Axel Alonso- Hercules is completely heterosexual. He stated this on ComicBookResources.com. I covered this once before and pointed out the idiotic notion that Hercules is completely heterosexual. Somehow his bisexuality, which has been hinted at in both the comic and in Greek mythology repeatedly, is being ignored. And now this cover was made. Look at it. He is so bisexual! I feel like the artists are intentionally either queer baiting or maybe they will make the character bisexual in the comic and Axel Alonso has changed his mind. I hope that both are the case. I would love to be able to read a Marvel Comic with a bisexual leading man.
I need to point out, everyone is making a big deal about Hercules’ man-bun. I don’t see the big deal in that. I think he’s sporting it pretty darn well in that image.
